Go to the CBS site I mentioned above for video.

That was a nice follow-up to KErry's discussion recently about SBA loans and grants. Gov. Blanco was great.

4. Did anyone else see the replay on Cspan?

It was on tonight at 10 Central. JK came in after it was underway and talked after Sen. Snowe, mainly about small business help. He was great as usual. He said that giving tax breaks next year isn't going to do much to help. He said what they need is capital now, to keep them from going under and moving away for good. They talked about grants and/or bridge loans.
